CHEST AND SHOULDER PAIN

Chest Pain

It is common to carry stress in the shoulders and having spinal misalignments can increase the amount of tension in the shoulders and chest. If you are experiencing chest pain, and have had an an evaluation by a medical doctor to rule out an emergency, visiting a chiropractor is a good second step. Many patients suffer from chest pain as a result of a mid-back misalignment or a rib that has moved out of alignment, causing feelings of pressure or spasms to occur. In some instances, patients have experienced sudden, intense, sharp chest pain and mistaken the experience for a heart attack, or another heart problem. Upon examination and x-ray from a chiropractor, it may be determined that the sensations were caused by a rib misalignment.

Shoulder Pain

Another reason people seek out chiropractic care is to treat shoulder pain. Pain in one, or both, shoulders can be caused by a variety of factors. Poor posture is one of the most common reasons for shoulder pain. Slouching while sitting or standing can increase muscle tension in the shoulder and cause discomfort. Shoulder pain may also be the result of an injury sustained while exercising and lifting weights or doing push/pull ups. Always sleeping on one side without proper support can also cause shoulder pain.

Common Causes:

Stress
mid-back misalignment
rib-misalignment
poor posture
muscle tension
previous injury
sleeping on one side
